Promoter: Quiz


Question 1: Eukaryotic promoter regulatory sequences typically bind proteins called ________ which are involved in the formation of the transcriptional complex.
Transcription factor II DGeneral transcription factorTranscription factor II FTranscription factor

Question 2: Not listed here are the many kinds of ________ that involve aberrant changes in transcriptional regulation owing to the creation of chimeric genes through pathological chromosomal translocation.

Question 3: The binding of a promoter sequence (P) to a sigma factor-________ complex (R) is a two-step process:
